That’s just seven days – so few you can count ’em on the fingers of, er, one and a bit hands! In a week’s time, a large contingent of the RISC OS community – hardware and software developers, businesses, hobbyist programmers and, of course, general users – will be converging on a hotel in a [...]
Is that what a time traveller does when crossing the road? At their next meeting, which takes place just two days from now on Monday, 20th February, the RISC OS User Group of London will be looking back over the last year, and forward to the next – but without the benefit of a crystal [...]
A last minute round-up before the bunker is sealed off for a few days! Later today, the RISCOSitory/Soft Rock Software bunker will be sealed and secured shut while I disappear into the middle of nowhere for my annual mid-February break. Hopefully, there will be no kind of apocalyptic event while I’m away, so the bunker [...]
Neil Thurlow has been in touch to let me know that the Surrey and Sussex Acorn User Group – aka SASAUG – will be holding their February meeting on Monday evening (13th February) from 8:00pm – but in a change from their previous schedule, the venue will not be the Horsham Methodist Church Hall. Instead, [...]
Show RISC OS some LUUUURVE! (And read that in a really deep inner voice!) Meeting on the second Tuesday of each month, the Southampton RISC OS User Group’s next meeting is on February 14th – Valentine’s Day – running from 7:00pm until 9:00pm at: Itchen College Sports Centre, Deacon Road, Southampton. The group can be [...]
If you have yet to vote, here are even more options for you – so why not get voting NOW? The RISC OS Awards 2016 voting form was put online on 18th December, and while the number of votes looked promising compared to last year the first time the alternative options were published, this is [...]
Originally developed by Guttorm Vik in the late 1990s as part of his editor project – which today we all know and love (Zap users excepted) as StrongED – StrongMen can display a hierarchical menu structure based on the contents of a text file. The menu entries can be used to run applications, launch URLs [...]
A bit of this, a bit of that, eye of newt, toe of frog – it’s all good. The next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) – the second meeting of 2017, but the first ‘normal’ meeting, because last month’s was the group’s annual general meeting – takes place on Wednesday, 1st [...]
Having first appeared on the RISC OS Open forum in February of last year, Patrick M – who at that point said he was new to programming – has had a bash at turning what he’s learnt since that point into a simple Asteroid-clone called SpaceShip [zip]. Tony Bartram of Amcog Games has since modified [...]
But cover up any private bits! In yet another BASIC-based initiative on the part of David Feugey’s RISC OS FR, a tailored edition of the latest Desktop Development Environment from RISC OS Open Ltd is on offer to people who want to get into BASIC programming, for the grand price tag of zero pounds, zero [...]
I've been getting distracted again. Using the Electron's capability to run code a bit faster from ROM when using MODEs 0-2, I've been experimenting with a ROM-based scrolling routine. You can see the results in this video. The first scroll-through updates the scroll offset every two frames; the second updates every frame.It's at least pos […]
The only trouble I found with setting the position via OS_Word (mouse handling in vncserver) is that the kernel ignores the new position if it lies outside of the mouse rectangle (unlike the internal routine the kernel uses to update the position, which will clamp it). So you have to track mouse rectangle changes yourself and perform your own clamping.
The fastest overall current ARM based system (RapidO Ig) […] Figures from Chris Hall Since it’s mathematically dubious to average percentages for things measured in different units, the table would suggest: Category 1st 2nd Processor 5432EVM Titanium Memory Titanium Rapido Ig Rect Copy Titanium 5432EVM Icon Plotting Rapido Ig 5432EVM Draw Path Rapido Ig 5432 […]

I’ve obviously done something stupid, as I’ve got the same problem. I updated my SD card to the latest OS and firmware and then merged the latest !Boot within RISC OS. Now I can’t save CMOS settings. I’ve taken the steps above, but on a reboot all settings are still lost. Config.txt has the necessary lines in it. When I use the Configure app to set monitor r […]
Jordan dates from 1992, and appears to be the genesis for KeyV and PointerV. https://www.riscosopen.org/viewer/view/castle/RiscOS/Sources/HWSupport/SerMouse/Doc/0197257.FS?rev=4.1 Looks like they also had a test podule which emulated some IOMD functionality. Possibly it’s another RiscPC hardware codename?

I’ve now fixed the ADSR so it works correctly. Added the SWI ranges etc. However, I’ve now linked the sample playback to the envelope command as well. So ENVELOPE 129 etc will allow one of the 256 samples that can be loaded to be selected instead of one of the simple waveforms. Before the beta release (which I am including within the Mop Tops game release) I […]
I just acquired a 'new' BBC as my last one refused to boot up. This one came with a disk drive, but that drive does not work yet (light goes on when I shift + break, but then nothing, no noise).But I had to do some work on this machine anyway (remove the smoke bombs from the power supply, reseat all socketed roms, clean the whole thing, put a new, […]
